The PC RPG was once one of the most highly revered genres in the gaming industry. Long relegated to the background by more action-devoted titles, games like Fallout and Neverwinter Nights are gradually making their return to the spotlight, albeit in forms mutated from their original depth and complexity. Fallout is no longer the isometric, morally-ambiguous quest it once was, and Neverwinter Nights has moved more into the realm of hack-'n-slash as time has gone on. One of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful PC RPGs has not diminished at all over the years, though, even though it has never received a proper sequel. I am referring to Baldur's Gate 2, one of the finest examples of story and gameplay being interweaved so elegantly that it revolutionized how many people saw RPGs. Its influence is still felt, and thanks in part to its success, BioWare can now make pretty much whatever they want. However, if you want a slice of AD&D from the year 2000, look no further.
